9 Parent Reviews for Blandford School

I recently left Blandford School and was amazed. The teachers pressing you to do your best by giving you assignments and projects that are not learned in some schools until much later years. Somehow, almost magically you learn all the material in your grade level too. But students must be prepared for ...  Read more

I went to this school last year and it was absolutely awesome. We were outside everyday, rain or snow. The teachers were great and we really got to know all the other kids at the school.

It is a beautiful public city school which integrates the environment with every aspect of their schooling. There is a beautiful nature center attached to the school.

She said, 'Mom, I just don't want this school year to be over. I wish this school would go through 12th grade.' This is my daughter ...  Read more

I went to this school and it was fantastic. I learned so many things that i would have never been taught in any other school. It was the best experience and by far the most exciting school year. Man do I miss that school.

Teachers make little or no attempt to meet students' learning needs. Principal is not based at school and is not responsive to parental concerns. School 'routine' is chaotic. Poor communication from teachers to parents regarding assignments, requirements.

My son loves the hands on projects and all the time spent outdoors learning about birds, trees, wildflowers, and ecosystems. I highly recommend this school for parents who want their child to learn, grow, and be challenged like never before. Parents, know that just about every child has nights they are ...  Read more

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level: 6

Test Year: 2013
Blandford School
Grand Rapids Public Schools
* In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
